Christmas, a special time of year when everyone spends a bundle and vents frustration on the ones they love. They complain about the queues, the amounts of snow or the lack thereof. "Mum vacuums as if there were no tomorrow and everyone's ultimately disappointed if dad doesn't have a drink“, essentially the Polish remake of Married... with Children that never was. Narrated from the perspective of the younger of two brothers, who always manages to find the right words for a rhythm of life full of both hard-luck and promise. Hanging out together at home, through good times and bad, all rounded off by light-hearted video clip like interludes.
